Dan's TR on DD

Mochjas TR

DDF DO Planning Thread

Seven Mile Market - supposedly the largest kosher supermarket in the country.

Market Maven (formerly Seasons) - great prices for meat and chicken, also good place for shabbos food


Hotels:
Only 1 Close and decent hotel to Jewish area (but not quite walking distance) is this Hilton Doubletree

Otherwise, there are a number of nice hotels downtown (which is also the inner harbor area) and near BWI airport. There are no shuls in the downtown area with regular minyanim, aside from Mincha minyanim in various offices.



Restaurants in the Jewish area (in no particular order):

Dairy

Dunkin Donuts - 2 kosher locations
Here and Here

Coffee Bean - 1 kosher location
Here

Sapori - sit-down Italian place

Milk & Honey Bistro - dairy homestyle cooking

Goldberg's Bagels - very good bagels and free wifi. Pikesville location is the one in the Jewish area

Mama Leah's - pizza that is a bit different, but IMHO (Lunatic), the best pizza in Baltimore

Caramel's - pizza shop, also has sushi

Eden Cafe - located inside the JCC (Closed as of July 2019)

Check the wiki - I worked hard on it  :D
I did check. You did a great job. The only reason I'm asking is because I was hoping for something a little more than decent. How does the residence inn near Owings Mills compare to it?

Double tree is just fine.
Owings mills is a drive - you cannot walk on Shabbos.

Is there a new shwarma place that opened recently? Or is that just a rumor...
As @davidmal says: "Likes" feed the family

TripAdvisor says pretty bad things about the double tree. What else is recommended within a 15 min drive to park heights?

how bad can it be? Itís a bed to sleep in. Iíve stayed there several times with no issues.  If you want something luxurious stay downtown. Owing Mills is not luxurious either. You said you wanted to be close. This is your best option
